AE Pixel Sorter 2

  • imageAE Pixel Sorter 2

    AE Pixel Sorter was the first tool to bring the pixel sorting glitch effect available for motion designers and video editors within After Effects. Experimenting with Pixel Sorting just became so much easier! Since its launch, AEPS had a huge success in Broadcast TV, Live performances, VJs, Music Videos, Video Games, Photography and even Apparel!

    Hi :) working on it! should see them coming in the next weeks. thanks for the interest!
  • So I have just bought this as it looks pretty cool and has been heavily promoted on Instagram....

    But the tutorial page is empty - which is pretty shit. If you are going to sell soemthing for $55 Au - then have the tutorials ready or at least show tutorials from V1 - pretty shit experience so far...

    I think I get your point! thanks for the feedback, tutos are coming
  • I went on your page and there is no tutorials, no Documentation.
    ...You should have those ready if you're launching a new plug-in.
    My 2 cents.

    Hi Rafael! I know :s I thought they would be ready the week after launch but I'm struggling to find the time. I'll fix this soon! as you mentioned, it's much needed. thanks for the feedback!
  • +1 for the need for documentation. It’s fun to randomly play around with the plugin, but lots of production time could have been saved if there were some tutorials to get up to speed and achieve the desired effects with more accuracy. There are some helpful videos on YouTube for v1, but this update is different in many ways. 

    Other than that, great job!

  • Hi ! You can test the plugin as long as you want, but it will be marked with a red X and resolution will be maxed at 950x540 pixels until you buy a license.

  • I am trying to render just the stretched pixels on a character how is rendered with an alpha channel. Unfortunately, this is very difficult to do, which is surprising. It seems that a few additional options would make this easier.

    I have been looking for a way to only output the stretched pixels without any of the source image. The only way I could achieve it was by duplicating the layer and setting the top comp to output Matte, and the second comp to track matt luma, but output gradient. This is a workaround, but it is cumbersome because now I have to copy animation keys across two comps.

    In addition, I have a character with an alpha channel, but the only way I could get wide pixel strips was to pre-comp it on a green bg and then use a Linear Color Key to remove the green. This is also a crazy workaround.

    I attached an image of the desired result.

    Hi Miles !
    Thanks for your feedback. I see you've already found the workarounds ;) that's in fact what you need to do to achieve this result with the current version of the plugin. I will take your feedback in consideration for the next versions,

    Cheers,

  • Hey sorry kind of a novice with AE. Was watching this tutorial @ this time stamp  and the person appears to change the orientation to both but I cant seem to find that option nor can I achieve that effect be trial and error. Would love some help here, thank you.

    Hi ! This tutorial is using the older, version 1 of the plugin. Now the rotation is made inside the plugin, you can do it by using the Angle option

  • Hello
    I have a questionabout the plugin.
    when i use the pixelsorter on a png with transparent background it doesn't affect the alpha part (or just a tiny part) but when I import a psd file where my png is. it affect everithing (and i find it to look better). So if i have a png sequence I can't pixelsorting it like I want. Preserve alpha chan is uncheck on the 2 png.
    I attach you the 2 img so you can see the difference.
    If someone can help me :)

    Have a nice day

  • Hello,

    Is the older version of Pixel Sorter still available?

    I have 2, but I need to work on someone else's project who built it with 1.

    Thanks,

    Hi gary, Yes! The plugin is half price if you already own V1. Just visit this page while being logged-in and the price will adjust
  • I love this plugin. I was wondering if there is a method I’m not seeing that can give you a z depth pixel sort similar to a zoom blur but without the blur. If not this would be a great addition. I am attempting to create a look like ahmed nabils color explosions featured on Adobe but in video form. Thank you for all you do.

    Hi Jonathan :) I'm guessing you could achieve something similar by using effects on top of AEPS, like Optical Compensation maybe ?
  • I was able to create the look I was going for. I had to take another route.

  • I have been looking for the same effect. There is a free plugin for Final Cut Pro that allows to sort pixels in depth (z axis) zoom like, but a paid After Effects plugin cannot do that.

    Could you tell me how you managed to achieve the effect?
